, then perhaps your ears picked up during this year's debate, when mitt romney talked about federal funding and took on pbs in the process. it was one of the memorable moments in the debate, when mitt romney called for an end to government funding of the moderator's own network. >> i am going to stop the subsidy to pbs, i like big bird, i like you too, but i won't keep spending on things to get china to pay for it. >> but while he didn't have an attack that night, president obama talked about it the next day. >> he will do away with regulations on wall street, but he will crack down on sesame street. thank goodness, somebody is finally cracking down on big bird. pbs has been a favorite target of mostly conservative politicians for years. when he was house speaker, gingrich called it a little sand box for the rich, prompting us to ask some parents what they thought about it. >> i think he chose the wrong target. >> the network of sesame street and the civil war and masters, pbs has 179 stations across the country, including some smaller rural stations that couldn't make it without the subsid
an opening to talk about romney's accountant and doesn't say you have a terrific accountant. chris: s.e. cupp, your view, was it a reset for the challenger? >> they certainly think it was. i talked to some romney advisors and they see the reset in three parts. they think for supporters who really wanted to see a fight, they wanted to see this knockout, dragout fight, they got that. for undecideds who they call the tough customers, they think that this debate does what the ads have not been able to do which is spark their attention. for the soft obama voters of 2008, they think maybe this group is in play again. they think this is a hat trick moving forward. chris: let me ask you, we have a big jobs number, it was below eight and was promised three years ago and is below eight, 7.8. is it enough to give obama a reshot of momentum? >> it's certainly a boost. is it a sugar high? these numbers bounce around. chris: good for the next month, though. >> good for the next month but the final judgment will come the weekend before the election. if this ends up being revised upward and, you know, there
week's presidential debate where romney talked about cutting public funding to pbs, even though he likes big bird. but "sesame street" workshop, a nonpartisan not for profit group behind "sesame street" says it did not approve this ad and wants it pulled from the airwaves. >>> it is a first for san francisco, a target store, not just ordinary target, though. it's a city target. or as we like to call it, tar-jay. that meant a long, long line to get into the official opening tonight at san francisco's metreon. it is one of eight smaller stores opening all across the country to serve busy urbanites they call it. it opens an hour earlier at 7:00 a.m. it features a separate active apparel store, and it has an outdoor seating and eating area. >>> silicon valley's startup spirit is moving north. fremont is now ranked the top city in the nation for tech startups. sizeup.com, a san francisco-based website found fremont has the most tech startups before capita. the rate of startups is twice as high as san jose which placed second. city officials of fremont say they've made it a priority to l
. >> the president talked about his health care plan, and mitt romney said my health care plan will do the same thing. >> i do think there's an issue here of whether something has to give. again, you can talk about fact checkers. simpson and bowles, i spoke to them and romney praises them. the math doesn't add up. somebody has to give. you have to specify where the deductions are. you can't increase defense spending, extend the bush cuts, 20% on top of that, and just say, no, it's going to be ok, we'll grow our way into it. that does raise a fair amount of scrutiny. >> sure. i think that's legitimate. first of all, romney has said to the degree they can't get the loopholes closed in congress, he'll reduce the tax credit. that he'll stick to the principle that it will pay for itself. there's a general argument over whether you should count economic growth. simpson and bowles don't count economic growth. two harvard experts said higher growth. third, romney has an energy plan which expanding american oil and gas. the royalties alone are worth $750 billion a year to the federal government. fourth, look
'll tell you after the election. you're attacking romney for the same thing. >> i want to talk about the gas prices. one thing that was striking, speaker gingrich, is what some were arguing about the actual numbers. jack welch made a lot of headlines with a tweet that said, unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't debate so they change the numbers without any substantiation. he was on "hardball" with chris matthews and this is how he explained it. >> i've reviewed 14 businesses this week. from restaurants to widgets. i have seen everybody with a third quarter equal to or weaker than the first quarter. in order to get 873,000 new jobs, you would have to have a g.d.p. going at 4% to 5%. the second quarter was downgraded from 1.7% to 1.3%. the third quarter is not going to be very strong. it just defies the imagination to have a surge larger than any surge since 1983 a month before the election. i leave it to you to do all the analysis. >> one of the most important ceos in america. formerly of general electric. does this ring true? >> well, it rings true to
the way to go. >> you what romney talking about wanting to spend more in defense. if you think that president obama is going to be re-elected. you don't want to be in ratheon, you're going to have to do a little selling. >> caller: i see that united health care purchased 90% of the brazilian health care companies down there, what do you see their stuff going from here and what do you think if romney's elected president? >> it's not as good if romney's elected president. because what happened is the health companies they went all in under obama. they did win. unh goes higher with president obama is re-elected. if you loved playing kick the can as a kid, as i did, you should have adored as an investor in an industrial based company, the kick the can theory, our stocks go higher. >>> coming up, ipo stud or dud. but does this cloud play offer enough profit to bring investors back to the table. find out when you get to know this ipo. >>> and later, up, up and away? amazon has already sold almost 50% this year and google is up over 15%. but could these two market leaders continue to
safe. >> i just want to talk to you about right in the middle of the crisis. governor romney, and you're talking about this again tonight, talked about the weakness, talked about apologies from the obama administration. was that really appropriate right in the middle of the crisis? >> on that same day, the obama administration had the exact same position. let's recall that they disavowed their own statement that they had put out earlier in the day in cairo. so we had the same position. but it's never too early to speak out for our values. we should have spoken out right away when the green revolution was up and starting, when iran was attacking their people. we should not call someone a reformer when he's turning his guns on his own people. we should always stand up for peace, democracy and individual rights and we should not be imposing these devastating defense cuts, because what that does when we equivocate on our values, it makes us more weak. it projects weakness. when we look weak, our adversaries are much more willing to test us and less willing -- >> with all due respect that'
hour, the woman behind the race for the white house, first lady michelle obama and ann romney talk to "good housekeeping" about their causes, their families. revealing some things you might not have known about the candidates. >>> when is the right time to start giving your kids an allowance? and how much should you be giving them? we're going to tell you the average for every age and the lessons you're teaching your kids about hopefully saving money. >> does allowance have some inflation over the years? >> i believe so. so will the tooth fairy. >> i know the tooth fairy has. >>> plus, a little bit of spice makes everything so nice. we're going to be making an easy spiced orange pound cake perfect for a halloween treat in just a little bit. >> but first, let's get a check on the weather. it's chilly outside. >> it's a tad brisk. let's see what we have for you today. the briskness will continue in the northeast and new england. risk of strong storms making their way along the missouri/arkansas border. we've got some beautiful weather in the pacific northwest, very wet through the so
